OTC Cannabidiol Products Tied to Improved Pain, Sleep, Anxiety Liz Scherer https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/967088?uac=292598PZ&faf=1&sso=true&impID=4065214&src=mkm_ret_220305_mscpmrk_neuro_pain Medscape Medical News © January 24, 2022   Over-the-counter cannabidiol (CBD) products appear to improve pain, sleep, and anxiety disorders, preliminary research suggests. Interim findings from the Advancing CBD Education and Science (ACES), a 100% virtual, open label, randomized controlled trial, show study participants experienced various degrees of "clinically meaningful" improvements in sleep quality, anxiety, and pain. “ACES is the largest clinical trial ever conducted on commercially available CBD products and provides first-of-its-kind real world evidence into what conditions users may experience benefit from CBD usage, whether these benefits are clinically meaningful, what attributes of CBD [...]

Cannabis in the management of PTSD : a systematic review, Yasir Rehman et al., 2021

Cannabis in the management of PTSD : a systematic review, Yasir Rehman, Amreen Saini, Sarina Huang, Emma Sood, Ravneet Gill and Sezgi Yanikomeroglu AIMS Neuroscience, 2021, 8, (3), 414-434. Doi : 10.3934/Neuroscience.2021022   Abstract : Introduction : Existing reviews exploring cannabis effectiveness have numerous limitations including narrow search strategies. We systematically explored cannabis effects on PTSD symptoms, quality of life (QOL), and return to work (RTW). We also investigated harm outcomes such as adverse effects and dropouts due to adverse effects, inefficacy, and all-cause dropout rates. Methods : Our search in MEDLINE, EMBASE, PsycInfo, CINAHL, Web of Science, CENTRAL, and PubMed databases, yielded 1 eligible RCT and 10 [...]

Endocannabinoid System as Therapeutic Target of PTSD : A Systematic Review, Luca Steardo, Jr. et al., 2021

Endocannabinoid System as Therapeutic Target of PTSD : A Systematic Review Luca Steardo, Jr., Elvira Anna Carbone, Giulia Menculini, Patrizia Moretti, Luca Steardo and Alfonso Tortorella Life, 2021, 11, 214. Doi : 10.3390/life11030214 Abstract : Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a complex disorder involving dysregulation of stress-related hormones and neurotransmitter systems. Research focused on the endocannabinoid system (eCBS) for anxiety and stress regulation, cognitive and emotional responses modulation and aversive memories extinction, leading to the hypothesis that it could represent a possible alternative treatment target for PTSD. In this systematic review, we summarize evidence about the efficacy and safety of medicinal cannabidiol (CBD), D9-tetrahydrocannabinol (D9-THC), and [...]

Cannabinoids and Neurogenesis : The Promised Solution for Neurodegeneration ?, Andrea Valeri and Emanuela Mazzon, 2021

Cannabinoids and Neurogenesis : The Promised Solution for Neurodegeneration ? Andrea Valeri and Emanuela Mazzon Molecules, 2021, 26, 6313, 1-26. doi : 10.3390/molecules26206313   Abstract : The concept of neurons as irreplaceable cells does not hold true today. Experiments and evidence of neurogenesis, also, in the adult brain give hope that some compounds or drugs can enhance this process, helping to reverse the outcomes of diseases or traumas that once were thought to be everlasting. Cannabinoids, both from natural and artificial origins, already proved to have several beneficial effects (e.g., anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidants and analgesic action), but also capacity to increase neuronal population, by replacing the [...]

The Impact of Cannabidiol on Human Brain Function : A Systematic Review, Albert Batalla et al., 2021

The Impact of Cannabidiol on Human Brain Function : A Systematic Review Albert Batalla, Julian Bos, Amber Postma and Matthijs G. Bossong Frontiers in Pharmacology, January 2021 | Volume 11 | Article 618184, 1-15. doi : 10.3389/fphar.2020.618184   Background : Accumulating evidence suggests that the non-intoxicating cannabinoid compound cannabidiol (CBD) may have antipsychotic and anxiolytic properties, and thus may be a promising new agent in the treatment of psychotic and anxiety disorders. However, the neurobiological substrates underlying the potential therapeutic effects of CBD are still unclear. The aim of this systematic review is to provide a detailed and up-todate systematic literature overview of neuroimaging studies [...]

Cannabidiol as a Therapeutic Alternative for Post-traumatic Stress Disorder : From Bench Research to Confirmation in Human Trials, Rafael M. Bitencourt and Reinaldo N. Takahashi, 2018

Cannabidiol as a Therapeutic Alternative for Post-traumatic Stress Disorder : From Bench Research to Confirmation in Human Trials Rafael M. Bitencourt and Reinaldo N. Takahashi Frontiers in Neuroscience, 2018, 12, 502, 1-10. Doi : 10.3389/fnins.2018.00502   Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is characterized by poor adaptation to a traumatic experience. This disorder affects approximately 10% of people at some point in life. Current pharmacological therapies for PTSD have been shown to be inefficient and produce considerable side effects. Since the discovery of the involvement of the endocannabinoid (eCB) system in emotional memory processing, pharmacological manipulation of eCB signaling has become a therapeutic possibility for the treatment of [...]
